We're Gregorio & Giada, we chose to live in the countryside about 10 years ago, raising animals: pigs above all, but also chickens, horses, Highlands cows, donkeys, cats and dogs. Over time two children have joined, and now we try to improve our work and sustainable lifestyle.
We have a small house and a big farm, a lot of woods around us, a river, a village named Pianello under a mountain! We're 15 kilometres from Cagli (PU), and we are about an hour from Urbino, Gubbio, the sea, many places because this place is located in a sort of green heart of Italy!
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
We're 32 years old and have chosen an essential lifestyle, here you can share with us how we cook, work, play. You can learn Italian, and we hope to learn something about your culture. You can observe how we reconcile technology and nature. You will be able to live in contact with animals, we raise them with awareness and respect.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
There is always something to plan or to build in our farm! Typical needs are:
-Take care of our vegetable garden, simple actions such as planting, harvesting, arranging, watering.
-Help with animal care.
-Share manual work with wood, iron, and a lot of recycling!
-Help with children: Leonida (6 years) and Petra (2 years).
